It is mainly based on the secondary data of Nepal Economic Census-2018. Information regarding objectives was collected through various search engines by simple literature review. The status of economic activities is found unequal at provincial level in Nepal. Among eighteen groups of economic activities, Bagmati province is in top-most position followed by province-1 and province-5.

Unscientific division of provinces, inequitable distribution of resources, miserable condition of infrastructure, ineffective tax policy creates complex problems even to operate economic activities in a proper and effective manner. Without balanced development of economic activities and economic prosperity, federalism mayn't be sustained.

To meet national commitment Prosperous Nepal, Happy Nepali and to fulfill the target of sustainable development goals, it is essential to perform effective joint efforts of all concerned authorities as soon as possible with the visionary and coordinating leadership of the federal government.
